Of course not. MKJ was not a teenager, and it was the mid 60s, and he was a public leader.
Heck, I wasnt even allowed to wear sneakers or jeans to public school until almost junior high, and that was in the 70s.
Are all teenagers with the low hanging pants thugs?
Its not the long hanging pants it is the want to be thug mentality that is portrayed to the youth as something to strive for.
The disrespect for others and women that is the norm.
Why dont teens in the American culture aspire to be scientists?

"Quickness is helpful in mathematics, but it is only one of the qualities which is helpful. For people who do not become mathematicians, the skills of contest math are probably even less relevant. These contests are a bit like spelling bees. There is some connection between good spelling and good writing, but the winner of the state spelling bee does not necessarily have the talent to become a good writer, and some fine writers are not good spellers. If there was a popular confusion between good spelling and good writing, many potential writers would be unnecessarily discouraged."

How sexy is science to the average teenager when your political party does everything it can do belittle it publically? What do you expect?

Not everyone should aspire to be a scientist. Just like not everyone should aspire to be a lawyer. Its an elitist assumption.

Then why is he so skeptical?[No pun intended.]

There are many science magnet schools in Chicago too.

IMSA is a state-wide, residential high school run by the state university system. Admission is by SAT score.

There is something wrong with your comprehension, what is my political party?

You totally didn't get what I said about thug mentality, you are really a brainless wonder.
You lilly white liberals are all the same and are usually closet racists.

Let me ask you when you go to a business meeting in your profession do you dress like a thug? Why or why not?

wouldn't it be incongruous to find scientists on a music channel?

If they do it out of their own free volition, then that is their prerogative. But how many women in middle-eastern, theocratic countries have the benefit of that option without facing severe consequences or threats from either government or fanatics?
What citations? Do you not read news papers? May be in "your" papers, they hide such news.

What is this "law against Burqas" in most European countries? Why do they not give the "choice" to women to dress any way they like?

It is you people who in West beat your drum loudest in support of Freedom of Choice, why it gets changed in the matter of Muslim women?

MUQ: "Why do they (Western governments) not give the "choice" to women to dress any way they like?"

JOEL: Do women living in Islamic nations have freedom of choice when it comes to dressing? Is a person free to question the teachings of Islam and/or quit the cult (Islam) in Muslim countries? MUQ is a hypocrite.

Muslims are keen to follow/implement sharia but at the same time they wish to make use of the wonders of modern science and technology which is odd and hypocritical.If Muslims wish to follow sharia they're free to do so but then they should not seek modern technology and modern medical care since these subjects find no mention in the Quran nor have they been developed by Muslims. LOL.
